For the first run, pay attention to network utilization.  There are no existing files for BackupPC to do anything with:  it's basically absorbing a bunch of new files.  So you are most likely going to be limited by the speed of the connection--even if it's a Gigabit connection.

For subsequent runs, see my other (very long) e-mail.  Examine the CPU usage (and I/O usage!) of your BackupPC server and see what is limiting you.
